Used 15.7 amps overnight... Not bad at all! But it was in the 40s in the van so the fridge didn't need to run much.

Fridge is @ 36.7 degrees inside now.

Sure beats refilling/draining this!



The fridge is huge. A week of food easily.

Nope, too many sensors, control pads, and display screens. Rumour has it that the new fridge temperature monitor has a monitor of it's own to ensure the batteries in the monitor are at the right voltage and temperature.
